For me, being goofy, offering a variety of choices, etc are for non-negotiable things. If we HAVE to be dressed and in the car at a certain time (and there are days we don't) they are told of that...

My feeling/plan is while they're still taking baths, as opposed to showers, just sitting in water hanging out is all the cleaning they really need. I'm also fairly sure at some point whether he's...
